The Changes

January 11th, 2009 Posted in reflection

Everything is going to go back to normal now, which is a good thing, but also a little sad. The holidays are over, the new year is here, Sisser is gone and so is Brudder. Their week-long, separate visits were good — I got to catch up with them. It’s odd to know that they are my “baby” siblings, yet they’re no longer “babies.” They’re grown up, and I can’t treat them like little kids anymore. My brother is 5 years younger than me, and my sister is 7 years younger than me. It’s amazing how as time goes, things change. Your setting changes, the people in your life changes. You change. Everything changes. Nothing is ever the same for long.

I am learning to appreciate the changes in my life. It is comforting to know, then, that when bad things happen, they don’t stay “bad” for long. Good things take their places, and we eventually all move right on along.
